Hollywood actor and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger may have to decide if Robert F Kennedy's killer is set free.
SIRHAN B SIRHAN, who fatally shot the US Senator on 5 June 1968, will have his application for parole heard today (15MAR06).
If the board approve his request, the final decision will lie with Schwarzenegger, who faces a conflict of interest through his marriage to Kennedy's niece Maria Shriver.
Sirhan was 24 years old when he fired a gun eight times into a crowd of people including Kennedy, just minutes after the politician won the California Presidential Primary.
The troubled youth, born to Palestinian parents, felt betrayed by Kennedy who showed support for Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War.
